In this game you are trapped in Netherworld. With your space ship you have to make your way through different levels with a hostile environment.

Your space ship is able to shoot, furthermore you can collect several power ups, such as sand glasses to ease the time limit, shield restore or items that give you invulnerability.

Trivia

The grinning person in the game cover art bears definite resemblance to Jukka Tapanimäki, the designer/programmer of the original C64 version of the game.
